The McKinley Giving Garden is a partnership among many—The McKinley Foundation, McKinley Presbyterian Church, Presby Hall, Faith in Place, and the UI Extension. The list keeps growing, and so does our garden!
We are growing produce for clients of the McKinley Pantry at Garden Hills as well as others in the community who have limited access to fresh produce.
How does this garden grow? With lots of love and labor from our friends and neighbors, and of course the wonders of nature. Now through the end of October, we will meet in the garden on Monday evenings beginning at 5:30 PM. We work until the work is done or until the sun goes down… whichever comes first. We would love your help.
No gardening experience is necessary, just a willingness to work outside for a couple hours. Each week we will have a volunteer captain on hand who will provide instruction for each task that’s needed that day. This is a great way to grow your own gardening skills while supporting a great cause.
